Palmer expected to make start for Bengals

UPDATE: Palmer is active for the game.

Carson Palmer‘s status for Thursday night’s meeting with the Jets was believed to be a game-time decision, but Bengals coach Marvin Lewis didn’t need that much time.

Lewis told NFL Network’s Kara Henderson hours before the game that the QB will start.

Palmer, who was listed as probable on the Bengals’ injury report, returned to practice Wednesday after missing the previous two days because of a foot injury he aggravated during last Sunday’s loss to the Bills. Sources close to the team told NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi on Wednesday that the injury still hadn’t healed.

But Palmer is going to give it a go.

The Bengals’ biggest injury concerns are on defense. Starting FS Chris Crocker (right knee) was placed on injured reserve, DE Antwan Odom (wrist) and SS Roy Williams (concussion) already have been declared out, and CBs Johnathan Joseph (ankle), Brandon Ghee (groin) and Rico Murray (ankle) are all questionable.

We’ll have more updates when the inactives are announced.
